Assemblymember Dr. Akilah Weber Issues Statement on SB 871 (Pan)

Today, I stand in agreement with the decision from Senator Dr. Richard Pan that his bill SB 871 will no longer be moving through the legislative process.

I appreciate Dr. Pan’s hard work to protect public health while also recognizing that the current data suggest it is not the time for this bill.
